In Memory of my dear FB friend Charlotte Fletcher for 10 years.
Flower- Roll a ball of quikwood about 3/4" diameter and flatten slightly. Make 3 separate 1/2" balls for petal and flatten slightly cutting off the pointy tips.
Place each petal on one side of the center of the flower and smooth into place with an old brush. With a blade indent each petal as desired.
Lady-bug- roll 2 balls one slightly smaller for the head and place on the Right petal indenting the body with a blade and the attach head.
Bee Body- Roll a 1 1/2" cone and attach to the top left flower petal. You can insert a toothpick for the head now or after you place on the stripes. Roll a thin piece of Quikwood and flatten slightly and lay over the body giving 2 stripes.
Insert the wings one the body and roll a 3/4" inch ball for the head and place on the toothpick. Using the quikwood tube I inserted it in the head to make a mouth, using the toothpick poke two eye holes, with the blade indent the eyes and eyebrows. Roll a tiny ball for the nose. Cut 2 pieces of wire and roll each one on the end placing them in the top of the head.
I used Americana DecoArt paints.
*Paint the entire project black.
*Paint the petals and wings white.
*Paint the body and center of the flower Spicy Mustard.
*Dry Brush the face with a light gray
*I used blush for the cheeks
*Spicy Mustard for the nose
*Primary Red for the lip and the ladybug.
*Highlight the cheeks each with a dot of white.
*Dot the ladybugs body with black
* I used Folk Art Apple Butter Brown antiquing on the entire project and then using a baby wipe I dabbed off the access. I dotted the petals with white and brown. Highlighted each bee stripe, center petal and front of bee body with white.
* Using modge podge entire project except the face and then sprinkling with glitter.
*I then for dimension gave each petal a highlight of white slick puffy paint.
As you can see I took this from Charlottes FB post in 2020 and before anyone gets upset with me I know she would be snorting with laughter right now at this. I sure hope you dressed comfy that day my friend. Me I hope I'm in my jammies. We just understood each others humor life's too short not to find laughter in each day!
